RIF TON TR AM

The Rifton TRAM The Rifton TRAM is a transfer and mobility device designed to deliver three powerful functions in

one compact unit: gait training, sit-to-stand transfers and seated transfers. In this way the TRAM offers far more utility than a standard patient lift at a remarkably low price. Capable of lifting and transferring patients of varying abilities and body types – up to 350 pounds, the TRAM features an innovative, patented support system that secures the patient with a simple buckle. This enables the caregiver to quickly prepare the client for a safe transfer. At just over 70 pounds, the TRAM’s compact, ultralight frame is maneuverable in small or confined areas, as well as simple to transport or store. Quickly adoptable by multiple caregivers, the TRAM’s intelligent engineering significantly reduces back strain and stress – providing a smarter and safer environment for workers.



I am blown away with the results of the Rifton TRAM. I have seen patients with severe strokes, spinal cord injuries, Guillian-Barre syndrome and CIDP come to our facility paralyzed and leave walking. This piece of technology has been key to discharging patients not to long-term care but home and into the community.

In-home healthcare solution The single most frequently cited reason for entering assisted living is toileting difficulties. The TRAM makes toilet transfers safe and quick for the caregiver or spouse. Furthermore, its versatility makes the TRAM the perfect sit-to-stand solution for the patient who needs help getting up or support while walking. Compact and agile, the TRAM is ideal for in-home healthcare.

Three powerful functions in one device

2. Sit-to-stand transfers

1. Gait training

Sit-to-stand for health The ability to transition between sitting and standing is critical for a patient’s independence and health. The TRAM’s walking saddle makes it easy for a caregiver to assist a patient with movement – regardless of the caregiver’s or patient’s size. With the TRAM, the transition from sitting to standing, and back down again, is both safe and simple.

3. Seated transfers A carefully engineered telescoping lift column gives the TRAM its low profile, providing patients with the security and dignity of unobstructed eye contact with their caregivers and surroundings.

Walking safely with support Equipped with a comfortable walking saddle, the TRAM provides safe, supported ambulation without using additional floor space or staff. The saddle eliminates a patient’s fear of falling, allowing for increased focus on essential tasks, while maintaining or regaining the ability to walk. Whether for daily exercise or more demanding rehab, the TRAM’s combined sit-to-stand and supported walking functions make it essential for the home or institution.

We love using the Rifton TRAM in our rehab department. We find it to be the best over-ground body-weight support system for the money. Although we have other gait trainers, we find the TRAM gives patients much more room for ambulation. We looked at another body-weight supported system but were turned off by the high price tag. We have an anti-gravity treadmill which we also love, but have found it is not for everyone. We believe the Rifton TRAM to be a great product at a reasonable price. Matthew Palmer, PT, DPT, GCS Director of Rehabilitation, NHC Lexington, KY

“What impressed me about the TRAM is that it serves a real need. It’s a clever and thoughtful use of existing technology that really empowers both the patient and caregiver. I haven’t seen anything this innovative in adaptive equipment in a long time.”

The TRAM’s optional scale allows the caregiver to weigh a patient as part of the transfer (without extra steps), as well as determine their weight-bearing capabilities.







The TRAM has been an answer to prayer for us. Now I never have to call 911 for help; I can provide all my husband’s care on my own. Toileting is far less complicated and stressful. My husband feels secure and comfortable as I move him, and there’s no more back strain for me! It is an amazing piece of equipment and meets our needs to safely transfer him from one chair to another and into and out of bed. We could not be happier. Darlene R. Roanoke, Virginia

Accessories

Thigh straps Used primarily for seated transfers. Choose either narrow (5") or wide (7"), depending on the needs of your client. Machine-washable to meet your hygiene requirements, additional straps can be purchased for individual clients and laundering. The straps can be quickly attached to the TRAM’s color-coded clips.

The TRAM’s optional scale Allows the caregiver to weigh a patient easily during a routine transfer, eliminating that special transfer just for the purpose of weighing. In addition, during supported ambulation the scale can measure how much weight the client is bearing, allowing the caregiver to measure and track weight-bearing capability and progress. Note: The scale option must be chosen at the time of the original purchase. It cannot be added later.

Forearm supports Provides extra lifting support for clients who have low tone or need their arms secured. The supports allow adjustments in every direction and angle to accommodate numerous positioning requirements. Adjustment range Padded surface area (elbow to fist): small 8”– 12½” small 4½"x 7" large 10½”– 16” large 5"x 8½"

New! Arm platforms Our new arm platforms offer a simple alternative for clients who need less arm positioning. Platforms attach to our adjustable arm prompt base and are made of an integral skin foam for padded comfort and easy cleaning. You asked for it, we delivered. Padded surface dimensions: 13½"x 5½"

Direction locks Locks engage with casters making it possible to roll the TRAM straight down the hall without drifting laterally. The locks can be inserted into any or all of the four casters, although two should be sufficient to ensure a straight path. With the locks released the casters are free to swivel, enabling maneuvers into tight spaces.

Walking saddle Available in three sizes, the walking saddle is used for sit-to-stand transfers and supported ambulation. Quickly hook up the walking saddle by attaching the rings to the colorcoded clips. Note that the walking saddle fits the client best when the straps are crossed as shown in the photo.

New! Removable back belt For settings where infection control is critical we offer an alternative back belt with a clip at both ends for easy removal and sanitation. Users should note however, that the removable belt adds approximately 4" to the body support circumference at its smallest (from 22" to 26"). Maximum circumference remains at 60".
